and that is the obama for america community grass roots organizers all across the country that wanted to come together to continue working for change and critical in getting key pieces of the agenda done. there is a -- there is a cry out there for some movement on gun control because the senseless violence, i think, is touching everybody. >> what i find -- what i find so baffling is the apparent power of the nra wields, for example. in the political system in america. compared to the amount of money they put in and the amount of membership they have, i don't really understand why they have such power or why so many politicians senior level are so frightened of them. >> well, look. jim comes from a state where guns are a huge issue. the truth is that it's been part of the american culture and tradition for a long time. particularly in rural areas. hunting, gun ownership, parents passing the tradition of hunting down. >> yep. >> to children. that's been part of our culture. on the other hand, we have in some of our communities real problems with violence and in chicago where i come from, we have had a t

together. cheryl: in today's inaugural address president obama addressed the need for sustainable energy, new energy technology to power job creation in his second term. let's take a look how energy did during the president's first four years. the s&p 500 energy sector is up about 50% since the president took office. most energy commodities are up two. rbob and crude oil are leading the way. those contracts we talk about them every day on this network. over the past four years crude oil has more than doubled. it is up 23% in that time frame. rbob soared even higher, up almost 1 % since january of 2009. s. one energy commodity, you know what i'm going to say, that dipped lower is natural gas. down 25% under the president. so much of it across the country. so surprise there. as we enter into the second term have prices plateaued? our next guest says the energy sector will continue to thrive with north america only years away from energy independence. david cid do, east/west petroleum corporation joins me in a fox business exclusive. he joins me from vancouver what he sees in oil production
's worse than it has been in living memory. there's more partisanship, more gridlock. >> president obama has done some great things. he hasn't brought the two sides together. he can point fingers at republicans, but what does he lack in not delivering cohesiveness? >> i think the president has done almost as well as he could. it's a miracle that he got obama care through this congress. with the partisanship and the gridlock in this congress to get something like that done -- >> he couldn't be doing more, though? >> you could, what, do more to try to socialize with members of the opposite party, but i feel -- in kt iffact i've been there -- i go to washington too often. and there is no longer any kind of trust between the parties. there is a lot 0 of distrust and it's not easy for a president to just snap his fingers and say, okay, everybody is going to be nice to each other. the republicans have said almost nothing but no. >> what's the biggest misconception about our economy? >> is that the did he haeficit biggest problem we face. the deficit is not the biggest problem we face. the bigg
. this is the third time that the president and john roberts have gotten together to do the oath of office. you might recall that four years ago during president obama's inauguration. chief justice flubbed the words of the inauguration so out of an abundance of caution the two men got together to resay it. that was the private ceremony with just the president's family there. there will be a public swearing in tomorrow on the national mall where they are expecting a crowd that will be smaller that they had four years ago where nearly 2 million people showed up. they are expecting maybe 800,000 people to be out here. there will being the traditional parade and two inaugural balls. security is extremely tight with 13,000 military and law enforcement people who will be in the crowd. but it will be scaled back but it will still be majestic with all the pomp we are used to seeing in an inauguration. abc7 news. carolyn. >> thank you very much. our coverage of the inauguration begins tomorrow at 4:00 a.m. with a special edition of good morning america. we will also have live streaming coverage at abc7news.co
republicans need to stop the rhetoric. obama needs to stop the blaming and recognized to coming together and show true leadership. this organizing for america and organizing for action in his campaign committee has turned not for profit, is this going to educate the american people or just another liberal spin machine? >> arthel: so you said congress should do of improving the relationship. i don't know if you told me if the voice of the people will play a part in that. >> our responsibility, congress should reach out to us. president works for us. we have the right to state our grievances but we have to take control. that is the problem. we have let washington, d.c. run amok. i don't think it's up to president or congress to allow the people to more involved. congress belongs to us and white house belongs to us. more people lose jobs, i think they will face grievances. >> arthel: let's talk about some of the major issues they are facing. immigration, gun laws, we're talking about spending cuts. do you think it's possible for the president, congress, everybody to work together somehow --
and we will see that so long as we seize it together -- >> this moment, it's more than the pomp and ceremony. for while inaugurations may be full of traditions, obama taking the oath on two bibles one abraham lincolns and one martin luther king jr.'s or the 21 gun salute or the trumpets blowing fanfare, inaugurations tell us something deeper about ourselves and the president we have chosen to lead us. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. >> change. this time around that word means something else to barack obama. he used his second inauguration to make an saw dags claim that the coalition that elected him is the next america, the rising generation and he spoke directly to and for them. it was a new american progressivism unleashed. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to w
. and he went unmistakably liberal. over and over, president obama echos his campaign slogan. >> together. together we discover. together. >> reporter: with that, he invited all americans to celebrate the changing landscape of american culture. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. but preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. >> reporter: he unapologetically laid out a progressive agenda. promising discussion on climate change, fighting poverty, equal pay for women, and immigration. >> centuries-long debate about the role of government of all-time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> reporter: and for the first time ever in an inaugural address, the president specifically mentioned gay rights. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for, if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another, must be equal, as well. >> reporter: but obama, four years ago, talked about the audacity of hope, now gives a nod to reality. reminding hi
by president obama to be serving as dnc chair. i vowed that no one would outwork us, and, together, we kept that promise and then some, didn't we? [applause] we sure did. results of that hard work speak for themselves. in the house of representatives, despite republican redistricting, we beat back the tea party in states like california, minnesota, illinois, and my home state of florida. [applause] in the senate, we picked up seats in massachusetts and indiana and won tough races in places like montana, north dakota, virginia, and missouri. of course, let's not forget the crowning achievement, something we've been celebrating all weekend long. together e -- together, we re-elected president barack obama. [applause] >> while we celebrate the victories, it's important to remember not just what we did, but how we did it. when we talk about the fact that together we built the largest, most dynamic grassroots campaign in the history of american politics, that's not just a sound bite; right? behind that statement are personal stories of millions of everyday americans, fighting for the future of t
the tradition of obama trying to bring people together. that's not been his record in office as president. but it's still the message that he adhered to in big speeches like this. >> and there's john kerry, who the president has nominated to be secretary of state. and behind john kerry was jack lew, who the president has nominated to be treasury secretary. the president has a new team that he's trying to get approved by the senate. this will be some of the first business that will be before the congress. the new treasury secretary, the new secretary of state. and, of course, confirming chuck hagel as the new secretary of defense. there's beyonce, who did such a magnificent job with the national anthem just a few moments ago. john dickerson is our cbs news political director, and he is down there with, we, the people, on the national mall. john? >> scott, normally presidents in these speeches, they take history and they bring it onstage so they can attach their agenda to it. as we've talked about, in his first speech barack obama mentioned concord, gettysburg, normandy. that history has be
-and-a-half years ago, when hillary clinton and barack obama got together with dianne feinstein, and said whatever they said to get on the same team and move the country forward. >> then she gave that great speech. >> she grave a great speech. >> at the building museum, that's right. that was a moment. >> it was not just dutiful, it was dramatic. >> that was a moment in the middle of everything that is preordained about some of the transition and ceremonial moments, there's very little room for spontaneity, and that was a moment at the event four years ago when hillary clinton made that decision and decided to go as far out there in terms of the way she was going to move forward with barack obama. that was something that was unexpected and did not need to go the way it did. it was a moment of political generosity and when it went furtherer in democratic politics, at a time that nothing else could have. >> flight the lights were on. something illuminated when she talked. i went, wow. who knows when the decision was made about the nomination for secretary of state, but the sequence was, boy, the dem
williamsburg to decide what to do moving forward, president obama facing unhappy rumbling from parts of the democratic party, what can he do to keep them together? our brain trust is here on inauguration weekend, we are paying them overtime, or special time, whatever it is. they will join us on the other side of the break.

sides would come together and cut taxes and spending and get a g grand bargain pier that seems to be a lost opportunity. obama seems to be moving away with it -- from it. they will get into squabbles over the debt ceiling, buthey will not deal with the pblem in an essential way. >> i am reading robert carroll's latest book on lbj. it looked like jack kennedy was having the same problem with the congress. evererything was being sidetracked. >> that is true. i would say this as far as what senator obama said in 2006, consistency is the hobgoblin of small mes. but there was a different attitude. we have raised the debt ceiling 70-plus times. the congress has voted to do it. there was always a sense of we are not going to vote e to rai the other guys debt ceiling but there was always the understa that we would provide the votes in the final ananalysis. the president's party y did that. right now, what you have is a situation where the republican party is reduced to its lowest standing in the history of "the wall streeeet journal" nbc poll. the only thing that is worse is john boehn
todd. >> thank you. >>> the second time around. love is not lovelier. president obama and congress face a pessimistic nation. very negative on their ability to work together. we're going to break down the new numbers in our brand new poll this morning. congress had slightly better numbers back in the '70s when minnesota's rick nolan first got elected. then he took a hiatus for 30 years. now he's back with a lot to say about what's changed. he is sort of everything is old is new again in our meet the new members series. the white house unveils the president's official portrait for the next four years. wait until you get a closer look at the toll of the last four on him. good morning from washington. it's friday, january 18th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. our final "daily rundown" of the obama first term. right to my first reads of the morning. if 2009 was all about hope, 2013 may be about the ability to cope. so says one of our pollsters. if it is possible americans have grown more pessimistic about their leaders in washington and, worse, they think those leaders ar
the president. she is much beloved here in washington on both side of the political aisle. president obama's main theme on this second inaugural day was national unity since there's an awful lot that we can get done if americans get together. at the president's second swearing in by supreme court chief justice john roberts, hundreds of thousands jammed the national mall. president obama had his hand on bibles use d by president lincon and martin luther king. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> we, the people -- >> reporter: in his inaugural address president obama echoed themes sounded by lincoln and king. >> while freedom is a gift from god, it must be secured by his people here on earth. >> reporter: the president urged action on the deficit and global warming and keeping kids safe. >> we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation who will build its futu future. >> reporter: we can, he said, find a way. >> my fellow americans, we are made for this moment and we will see so long as we
issues, obama pushed for unity. >> my fellow americans, we're made for this moment and we'll seize it, as long as we seize it together. >> reporter: he brought attention to climate change and gay rights and equal pay for women and we heard a familiar theme from the campaign trail. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. >> reporter: no inauguration would be complete without the president and first lady walking the parade route. then more personal moments, enjoying the festivities and music from the comfort of their viewing stand. >> so lots of moments but perhaps the biggest question of all, what was michelle obama going to be wearing to the balls? turns out she wore a dress, a red long gown and that's the same designer from four years ago, jason wu. we're live in washington, back to you. >>> once again, the inaugural celebration is in full swing. this is a live picture of the commander in chief's ball. that is taking place inside the washington convention center. there are only two off
, emphasizing hard work, emphasizing self-reliance, emphasizing doing things together. i thought it was a good speech. so where did newt gingrich get the obama kool-aid over the inaugural weekend? because this does not sound like the same newt gingrich we have been hearing all through the primary and through the general. >> well, i quit a long time ago trying to predict or explain newt gingrich. let me just say broadly, i think that it was a soaring rhetorical speech but i think generally the partisan lines just got deeper, and i think that, you know, both president obama and president bush came to washington with the notion that they were going to change the culture of washington and for some similar and some different reasons, they both came to a conclusion they can't. i think that was the conclusion yesterday, president obama said he's going to dig in, wave the white flag, washington wins and politics as usual wins, which is unfortunate in some ways because i have talked to the freshman class of incoming congress folks and they campaign in an environment where people are really saying the o
-elect obama riding over together. while i think the obamas were pleasantly surprised as how smooth the transition was, how the bush administration bent over backward toes make sure there was a smooth transition of power, obama had run against bush and the bush policies and to this day talked about the bush policies and rails against them. so that was quite a ride, as well. >> erica hill is not far from where about two more turns is going to bring them past her location. they're kind of coming the back way. you saw them come out past the side of the treasury department, past the old riggs bank building, the dnc bank building. erica, we should be near you. >> yes, they are making their way near us, brian. we just saw them turn the corner to start making their way down past freedom plaza. i can see all the people in the stands, you can see them immediately. they popped up, put their phones, their ipads up, all hoping to catch a glimpse of the president as he comes by. they are making their way down, of course, towards the capital. and we are watching as they approach freedom plaza at
together, the new >> organizing for action. >> even though the o is -- a lot of people think it's the o as for obama. >> this supporter, these lists all this act assists have no long ear campaign. they're giving them to agenda. these are the kind of people who live in the districts that the president has already won. what would be more effective is to try to figure out how do we do this? >> they try angling -- and to john's point this is a question for the president and i've had a blun -- does he want to spend his time worrying about mill legacy. now i'm going spend the next four cements the my legacy. or does he use it as an opportunity to point out, you knoll real yes cement the coalition. what's interesting with his mat, this week about their capacity to ever agree him baisley on anything. he's three row. you could imagine he's reaching out to the other side. this is written about -- gwen: he only has a second room before he goes, where are we are. >> we have a year 1/2 to push immigration, gun control things that will add to his legacy. he's got to focus on ample money. he has to ma
its act together. >> greta: back in 2006 when president obama was then a senator he actually voted against raising the debt ceiling. so what has changed now? congressman jason chaffetz nice to see you. >> well, congress spending pushing and the president pushing for this? we have to stop the spending. like the alcoholic who won't give up his drink anymore, you have to slow this. >> greta: what president obama said today he's basically executing what you in congress are telling him to do. you authorize the spending and he's got to pay the bills. and so now you're saying he can't borrow the money. >> no, we've got to make sure we prioritize the payment of the 16.4 trillion dollars that this government owes, but we have to solve the problem. we don't need just the deal. we actually have to solve the problem and the way you solve that problem is it cut up the credit card and slow the spending to a point where you actually cut into the deficit and pay off the debt. >> you know what i didn't like today. i thought it was annoying, he may have to slow down social security payments if-- and
" columns. most presidents in their second term feel liberated and obama's staff has told some the national mainstream media that he too feels liberated not liberated to try to wring people together and liberated ld from partisanship. liberated to be more concentrational, more partisan. he can basically take the fight to the republicans and the conservatives and that his goal is to win the 2014 elections and return control of the house to the democrats. most second term presidents have a significantly less partisan and less confrontational attitude towards that they try to atracking poll. 49% for obama. 67% in the polls four years ago. 18 point decline from that. the way that he is operating is not designed to make him more popular and bring the country together. >> now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards
of the united states -- >> reporter: together, the president and vice president also laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier in arlington national cemetery -- [ "taps" ] -- before the obamas headed to church. even before hundreds of thousands gather for tomorrow's inaugural address, the obstacles the president faces in the second term in with a deeply divided government, were on full display from guns -- >> within minutes of that horrible tragedy in newtown, the president began trying to exploit that tragedy to push a gun control agenda that is designed to appeal to partisans. >> reporter: to the nation's still-recovering economy. >> he is addicted to spending. and those are policies that will hurt our country long term. >> reporter: and tonight, a top white house adviser tells nbc news that the president has finished writing his remarks for his inaugural address tomorrow that he will deliver shortly after completing the ceremonial oath of office. and then, tomorrow night, the obamas, lester, will celebrate with two inaugural balls, compared to ten four years ago. >> all right, peter,
consultants joining us. friend and advisor of president obama. paul, you wrote an article today. you said the president should say all the right things in his speech tomorrow about coming together and about unity and go out and be ruthless. >> yes. that is the lesson of lincoln. in the first inaugural he talked about appealing to the better angels of our nature and then we went to war. he tried. president obama has tried. i think presidents have to change, try to change the culture in which they are placed. in this case, this division that we have in the country isn't going to be healed. it wasn't healed by president clinton. it wasn't healed by president bush. it has not been healed by president obama be . >> you're saying it doesn't matter what he says tomorrow. he should just be ruthless. >> i think he's got to pursue his agenda with way president lincoln did. yes, with relentless commitment. i think the central political miscalculation of his first term is he thought his mere presence would bank those partisan. >> you're going to be saying yada, yada in his head. >> i think the more e
the president and the congressional leaders he spoke about coming together. take a listen. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flags that flew over this battalion of democracy today, to president obama and vice president joe biden. to you gentleman, i say, congratulations and godspeed. >>reporter: the real test whether they can come together is not today with the porch and circumstance but more likely next month with the president going back to capitol hill to deliver the state of the union address. he will have more details on immigration reform, the deficit reduction plan with sharp differences between the parties. they are talking about coming together today but there will be a lot of major policy battles in the days ahead. people have been waiting on pennsylvania av parade to come by and they cannot wait to see the president. the pomp and circumstance will carry the day for now; the policy for another day. >>shepard: i work in new york and you in washington and only today did i learn that your nickname is crazy eddie spaghetti. how did that happen? chn or here? >>report
